The delicious sweet summer snack below is from foodie Amy Sherman. Her Popcorn Crunch puts a fun twist on a traditional movie-theatre favorite. Popcorn can be a caloric bomb loaded with fat, and calories (up to 1220 calories per serving!) however, Amy’s grab n’ go Popcorn Crunch packs the punch with a flavor of caramel and toasty nuts that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Amy says the recipe was actually an accident, “Sometimes the best recipes are happy accidents. I was trying to make a snack bar but over toasted the mixture of honey, sugar, peanut butter and popcorn. The result? Something much more delicious! A crunchy popcorn mix that is positively addictive.”
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
4 cups popcorn
Cook sugar and honey until sugar dissolves about 3 minutes. Add peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time, to prevent it from clumping together. Cook another 2 minutes then stir and cook another 2 minutes. Add popcorn dispersing it evenly. Cook for 3 minutes then transfer to a greased sheet pan to cool.
